Oil on all 6 spark plugs, and antifreeze in clylinder #6


Asked by nettieshawn Mar 28, 2009 at 06:02 PM about the 1998 Honda Passport 4 Dr LX 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Honda Passport with 183000 miles the check engine light came on my husband got the code out and it was a misfire cylinder #6.  He pulled the spark plug and there was oil all over it.  He changed the coil pack.  The car recently over heated and there was no anitfreeze in it.  He decided that he should change all the plugs and now there is antifreeze in cylinder #6.  Could this be a head gasget, valve cover seal?  Is it worth fixing?

I have a 98' passport with the same problem. It's a blown head gasket that is flooding your #6. Worth fixing or not is up to you. Gonna cost several thousand dollars. If you really want to keep your truck it will be better in the long run to replace engine.
